In conjunction with Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday, the museum also holds a free Family Day at its location in Makiki Heights, with entertainment and an art activity. A free shuttle bus will run between the Honolulu Museum of Art and Spalding House, so you can enjoy two different events in one day.
November 15: Lords and Swords
After crafting chess pieces at the museum's main campus, visit the final chess piece station at Spalding House. There you can mold clay into any piece on the board. We’ll have models for you to use as guides or you can use your imagination to come up with your own creation. Checkmate!
Get your kids into the Hanukkah spirit at Spalding House Family Day by making a dreidel—a small four-sided spinning top used in Hanukkah games—that they can eat! Kids will build their fun snack using pretzel sticks, chocolate Kiss candies, marshmallows, and peanut butter as glue.
